Really fine show, but...
...there are 5-second periods of silence at the end of each track, so bewarned before converting and burning. Even after editing out the silence, it's apparent that there was some crowd noise between songs that was cut from the original as the tracks don't flow into each other. Those with sound manipulation software may want to do some crossfading. Ours is, without a doubt, one of the best "unknown" bands out there, and they are especially strong in this performance. Jimmy G. has one of the strongest voices I've heard in recent memory- he has moments that send chills down the spine throughout the concert. "Drowning" (my favorite composition thus far by the band) absolutely kicks ass here compared to the studio version, IMO. This would have probably gotten 5 stars from me had the recording been edited better, and I've *never* given such a rating here...

If you're going to get an ours recording, this is definantly a great one to get. Instruments come through really clear and so does his voice. I was really impressed by this show, I wish I could have been there!! Great version of "I'm a Monster".
